London Marathon Information Evening, 11th February


We thoroughly enjoyed hosting our annual London Marathon Information Evening on Monday 11th February, and were proud to welcome a record number of runners!


The informal evening, held at our Irthlingborough centre, offered the chance for runners to take a look around our centre, meet fellow participants, and of course it was great opportunity for us to meet these amazing people in person! 


Guest speaker this year was Andrew Walker, himself an experienced London Marathon runner, and a member of Team HEN 2019. Andrew shared his knowledge and experiences, offering hints/tips about build-up to race day, nutrition, lasting the distance, and of course, recovery.


Huge thanks to all who attended!
